FIND YOUR CALM: Moving Meditation

Location: Island Arts Collective, Cannery Landing, top floor, first door on the right, Friday Harbor.

Description: You’re working in a stressful job, taking care of kids, aging parents, or all of the above. You’re helping out a few non-profits here and there, and fighting your unsettling anxiety and frustration with our country’s current political mess. It seems like you’re getting less and less done, feeling pretty worn out, and barely hanging on by your fingernails. Does that about sum it up?

I know what that feels like because I’ve been there. But I found something that has helped me improve my focus, my energy, my sleep, and my overall well-being. It’s moving meditation, and that’s why I created a class called FIND YOUR CALM.  The class includes discussion as well as exercises, and runs for 6 weeks on Mondays beginning April 17, 5:15 – 6:30.     

Yah, I know, you think you can’t meditate because your brain won’t calm down. That’s the point of ‘moving’; it’s much easier to reach that peaceful state when you’re focusing on the simple, gentle moves that I’ll teach you, and the sensations in your body. In each class session, I’ll give you simple tools and a short sequence of easy exercises that you can use on your own, anytime, anywhere.

In fact, once you cultivate the habit of slowing down with these simple movements and meditations, it feels so luscious, you’ll find yourself actually setting aside time to do it.  And with regular practice, you’ll learn to focus better so you get more done; prioritize to spend your precious time on the things that are most important in your life; energize your life force so you can get through the day without feeling depleted; and improve your general outlook on life. Moving meditation offers all the things that traditional meditation does, but I find it to be much more gratifying – but of course, I’m biased.
